It is the final week of spring training and the Phillies offense is coming together. Saturday, in Bradenton, the Fightin' Phils pounded the Orioles, 13-4. Domonic Brown (.389) belted his 7th spring homer, drove in a total of 4 runs and has apparently won a starting job! Ryan Howard, looking 100% healthy, also went deep for Philadelphia. Antonio Bastardo threw a scoreless inning out of the pen.
In Port St. Lucie, Travis d'Arnaud was 1 for 1, a single to drive in the game winning run in the 8th inning for the Mets, as New York topped the Nationals, 3-2!..............In Lakeland, Quintin Berry was 2 for 2 and scored a run for the Tigers in their 10-6 victory over the Yankees.
Out in Arizona, Lou Marson was 2 for 2 and scored a run for the Indians in Cleveland's 10-5 win over the Mariners.
The Athletics have assigned Michael Taylor to AAA-Sacramento.
